Other news, Meredith is officially a JV cheerleader. Woot for Mer.

She's still seeing Matt. Today he sent dropped off a dozen roses for her at school. She was so excited.

Mer and I are going to my mom's tomorrow to celebrate my brother Kenny's birthday. I think we're doing a meal and a movie.
So the run down of exciting things today.

Cut for those of you who don't want to read about earwax )

Also, there is a thuggish girl threatening Meredith. I spoke with the school officer today about it, and he spoke to the girl and her father. Hopefully it will stop now. If not, I'll drag her punk ass into court because it is a felony to threaten someone via email. Usually I try to let kids work things out between themselves, but this girl's gone a bit far and I'm tired of it. Don't fuck with my kid.

I did end up getting a couple hours to myself. That part of the day was nice.

Also, big hugs and lots of love and prayers for Gina. I'm so sorry for what you're going through, love. I'm here if you need to talk.

Meredith came to me on Saturday to tell me that she needs a physical in order to try out for cheerleading TODAY. o.O So, I stayed home today to try to get her an appointment somewhere and also because I really just need some alone time. I'm almost never home by myself - James and/or Mer are always here. It's been driving me a little crazy lately. My doctor's office is booked, so I have to take her to an Urgent Care place, which will cost quite a bit more than my $10 co-pay at the regular doctor. But that's not the worst of it.

Meredith came upstairs after her shower to show me a rash on her shoulders and back. It could be poison ivy or something innocuous like that, but it looked an awful lot like chicken pox. She had chicken pox as a baby, but it was a pretty mild case, so it's entirely possible that she could get it again. Which would, of course, mean she'd miss try-outs, and several days of school, and I would have to quit carpooling with Becky for fear of passing something on to her while she's still in her first trimester of pregnancy. I'm not sure if I even could pass chicken pox on to her, but that's just not a risk I'm willing to take, you know?

And, on a more selfish & whiny note, it would mean that my alone time for today just got screwed.

Damnit.
Today one of the varsity cheerleaders from my daughter's school was killed in a car accident. I don't know the whole story yet but the gossip circulating amongst the teenagers is that she 'borrowed' the car to go visit her boyfriend very, very early this morning and on the way home the police attempted to pull her over. She only had a learner's permit so she tried to evade the police and lost control of the car. All the freshman cheerleaders are assigned a 'Big Sister' from the varsity squad and this girl was Meredith's. I can't even imagine what her parents are going through. It was all so completely avoidable.

I got the invitation to Cyn's wedding today. I'm very happy she's finally found someone she wants to spend her life with but it looks increasingly like I won't be able to afford to go to the ceremony. Mer's grandmother on her dad's side might be able to get me a buddy pass for the airline she used to work at but I'd still have to come up with money for a hotel and food, etc... Maui's not known for it's budget friendliness. Meredith really wanted to go because she saw a picture of Cyn's brother and she thinks he's TOTALLY HAWT! Granted, he is less than four years older than her but its kind of disturbing to have my kid drooling over my friend's little brother. Although it's not as bad as the oogy feeling I got when Mer decided she wanted to marry a guy I used to date when I was in high school. Never, ever letting her near him. I swear the girl is trying to kill me - or at the very least, make me puke.

I'll be stuck in a boring training class for the next two days. I've taken it before but my old boss wanted me to take the updated version. Now I can't get out of it even though my new boss doesn't care. I can't even bring my laptop; it's all bookwork and lecturing. Grumble grumble.

I can't seem to get any writing done. I've been trying to work on Anniversary. I know what's going to happen next, I just can't seem to transfer it into words. It wouldn't be so bad if I could be productive on one of my other stories but all avenues of creativity seem to be jammed at the moment.

On the plus side - one hour and fifteen minutes until The Shield comes on. It's killing me that they are manipulating Lem. I just want to go whip Forest Whitaker's ass. I'll tell him where he can stick his piece of gum!

Had a meeting at Mer's school today. It was good news, she's really improved her performance since the meeting we had last month. Hopefully this will continue, it's very frustrating to watch her do poorly just because she doesn't feel like doing homework. She'll get yanked off the cheerleading squad if she doesn't get high enough marks at the end of the semester and she won't be able to do track in the spring. We've decided to take the spring off from her travel soccer team. A lot of girls are playing on their school teams and the coach is due to give birth in April. Seems like a good season to sit out.

Wow, that paragraph just rambled all over the place. I must be tired. I stayed at work until almost 8:00 tonight because I had to pack up my old office. Tomorrow I'll move my two boxes of crap to my new office. Only two more weeks of sharing work between the two jobs and then I'll be done! Woo-hoo! It's been exhausting and I'm heartily looking forward to it being over.
This is me. This is me whining. Is there a difference? Not today.

Kate's Whine-a-thon:

- One of my projects at work is being audited and nothing I'm doing to prepare for it is going right!
- My head has ached all freakin' day! How many Advil does it take to kill you? I must be approaching the limit.
- I either have allergies or a cold. It feels like allergies, but what the hell is there to be allergic to in January? My eyes itch and my nose is running.
- I stayed up too late reading and I'm very tired. I want to go home!
- My daughter is cheering tonight at the basketball game but I will probably miss it *again* because I have too much work to do.
- Despite having a buttload of work to do, I'm updating my LJ. Where are my priorities?
- It's yucky and depressing outside.
- I'd rather be working on my stories.

Boo hoo, poor me. *serving tea at the pity party*

Ok, that's enough of that. Positive thoughts, any moment there will be positive thoughts...
